    There is a restriction on the years in which Births, Marriages and Deaths are published online.
    You will need to contact the Secretary, Kilcummin Parish, Oughterard, Co. Galway for the baptism records.
    Subscription Site http://www.findmypast.ie has a partial record of a Mary J. Gill for the 1st quarter of 1948.
    Her mother is recorded as “Walsh”, Her father’s name is not recorded.
    Regards,

  • Thank you all for your very kind help. But …! Another request: I have quite few John Gills, often father & sons, so finding their wider family is important in separating all the Johns. And mine invariably marry a Mary which makes it even harder (esp without their maiden names). Eighterard is so small that I think every Gill I find is an ancestor! Can anyone add any more context to help me sort out my conundrum in relation to the lovely photo above.

  • Thank you. But … I cannot find a Gill born from 1946 onwards, so can’t find Maura (Mary?) or John Gill as the children of John Gill and Agnes Walsh.

    I can find a Michael Gill, born 1919, likely brother of John at his 1946 wedding , and Mary Gill (Maura?) born 1917, all siblings of John in the photo; at irishgeneology etc.

    Any idea where I am going wrong?
